Manly brown/neutral look

Monday 11 October 2010

I thought I'd try a natural/brown look with the Manly palette which actually made me like this palette that little bit more (than I already do). I still don't love the brand as much as Urban Decay because you have to use more product, but in all honesty, the matte colours are starting to appeal to me more & more, so I may look in to buying some matte UD shades.. or Primark ones ;)

For this look, I used:

> Manly palette - browns (bottom row) & beige-yellow colour (2nd to the left of the bottom row)
> UD 24/7 eyeliners in "zero" & "bourbon"
> Eyelash curlers
> Dior Show mascara (black)
> MAC select moisturecover in NC35
> Sleek Glo "bronze baby" face & body highlighter
> Elf lipgloss in "honey"

To start, I added a lot of the beige-yellow colour to the full eyelid from inner corner to outer corner, using the MO shading brush, and also on the brow bone. As before with the pink look, I find myself adding more eyeshadow cos I don't find it vibrant/pigmented enough.. I don't know if that's just me?? 
After putting the beige on the eyelid, I used a red-brown (matte) colour for the crease, using the MO blending brush, and blending out in a semi-winged effect, followed by a shimmery golden-brown on top for a darker brown. I blended as much as possible at both ends of the brown; blending down from the beige brow bone, and blending upwards from the beige eyelid, always b-l-e-n-d-i-n-g!
The top eyelid was lined with the UD Zero eyeliner as well as the lower waterline, whilst the lower lashline was lined with Bourbon (a golden-brown shimmery eyeliner).
After curling the eyelashes & applying concealer, black Dior Show mascara was used (with zigzag motions as always!).

For the rest of the face I used the Sleek "bronze baby" glo highlighter on the cheeks and a neutral lipgloss shade by Elf- Honey.
